There are more than 400 days before Election Day on Nov. 6, 2016.

Before that day we will have been subjected to a torrent of political noise, attack and counter attacks, startling revelations, etc.

Many points will have been made and made and made.

Candidates will view with alarm, view with alarm and view with alarm.

They will also be exhausted by Nov. 6 and the winner will have to take over the toughest job in the USA.

England is older and wiser than we are. They have limited campaigns to about 90 days. Now that is pure wisdom!!! As the song in “My Fair Lady” goes, “Wouldn’t it be lovely?”

I predict that some time down the road, say in 20 years, something like this may happen here. The public may demand it.

What can we do about this long run for office?

Nothing.

To use an old expression, “Just grin and bear it.”
